American Gold Eagle coins are the official gold bullion product of the United States. Each year, the United States Mint produces the coin in three versions, with four weights available in each version. The American Gold Eagle has been phased in in stages over its history. The bullion and proof coin were available first, with all four weights in the bullion version and only a 1 oz for the proof in 1986.
These 1987-P oz Proof American Gold Eagle Coins were the first fractional-weight coins introduced in the proof version of the program. Each coin in this listing has a perfect grade from the PCGS, indicating that the full, original luster is still present and there are no detracting flaws.
A Deep-cameo finish speaks to the visual brilliance of the coin. A strong, frosted finish on the design set gives it the appearance of floating above the deeply-mirrored, clear background field of the coin.
On the reverse side is the image of a family of bald eagles created by Miley Busiek. In her design, a male eagle returns to the nest with an olive branch in its talons, while a female stands guard over the hatchlings.
Augustus Saint-Gaudens iconic Lady Liberty image is featured on the obverse. Originally designed in 1905, his image of Liberty striding confidently forward into an unknown future has been refined and updated for use on the American Gold Eagle.
